Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

Colorado Technical University Online was a Godsend to me. As a mother and wife and working mom, online classes were my only option to finish my degree. The classes were short which helped me earn my degree at a quicker pace. The classes were taught by professionals in the field and not just Professors that studied the subject. They worked the field and new it first hand. Any time I called the school regarding financial aid, classes, or anything in general they always had an answer. Great school all around and I refer people to the school all the time.

It was a great school. The school worked for me at the time. It was easy to work raise a family and keep up with life while going to school. I would really recommend the school however a person needs to consider their future while in school. The school was amazing academically.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

CTU is an incredible university. As a current graduate student, I've been fortunate to experience their experienced staff from the professional military advisors to savvy financial aid. The admissions personnel makes the process simple and straightforward while the instructors in the classroom/online are readily available for help and able to answer any students' questions.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2009

I like Colorado Technical University as far as how easy it was to attend classes online, however I did not like that my degree was not explained in full detail to me before I registered. The class connection was good and thought that I was able to connect with other students.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors provided a wealth of knowledge and experience for the most part. I enjoyed the experience of learning from them. My issues regarded outdated resources from the business school. We have been experiencing a paradigm shift within the Business Development industry for the past 7 or so years. Topics such as Globalization, Internet of Things and Collaborative Commons are reshaping the business and economic realms. It was disheartening to find out that course materials did not cover these topics. Another poor experience dealt with the Financial Aid Department. I experienced a financial hardship towards the end of my degree program in 2015. I was told that since I was a returning student I qualified for additional funding. I submitted all documents as requested and was told that I would be awarded the funds. I never received them. The reason I was given was I graduated prior to the award date. I have obtained my MBA Healthcare Management GPA 3.69 and my MS Management GPA 3.93 from CTU. I have applied for several positions at CTU and other places to no avail. While I appreciate the professors and their contribution to my education, most of my resources and learning materials came from my industry exposure and curiosity. I have recently enrolled into the DM Non Profit Leadership Program scheduled to begin this Fall. I believe that working hand in hand with the professors will not only allow me to glean from their wisdom, but give me the opportunity to gain credit for my research, update the curriculum for lower degree programs and have my work published. In an effort to avoid dealing with the Financial Aid Department, my goal is to receive enough scholarship and grant funding to erase my student loan debt, secure my basic needs and totally pay for my doctoral program and supplies. It is truly worth attending CTU if for no other reason than to interact with the professors.

Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2018

This school is great. They work around your time, Group discussion is easy to follow. Students services will work with you to make sure you are on the right track and help with whatever questions you may. There's an option where you could use Fast Track and not have to take the course if you already have experience. Overall , this is the school to attend.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

CTU online gave me the motivation and the drive to go back to school. With the Ed counselors and the financial adviser readily available just an email away. The professors are very understanding and very flexible. Being a medic doing a 12 hr 3x a week and a father of 2 x24hrs a day is no joke. However, if you have the drive and the passion to finish your degree CTU will be able to help you achieve your goal. Everything is online and for an old school campus learning guy like me it was very easy to adjust and adapt to the learning style and educational setting. If you have the will CTU wil make the way.

Degree: MBA in Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2008

As a Registered Nurse, I thought that if I got a MBA in Health Care Management I would not have to deal with discrimination due to me been a Hispanic female but when I got my first job working as a Clinic Manager I was not only expected to manage a dialysis clinic but also work the floor as a RN and be on call 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. Most Nurse Managers are on salary so companies save money by making you work the floor and not having to paying you overtime and by not hiring more nurses. The degree works better if one is not a RN .
